The waiting is over, The Kills' - Jamie Hince and Alison Mosshart - new studio album ' Blood Pressures ' is finally out this week!  The album is the highly anticipated follow-up to their critically acclaimed third album, Midnight Boom and you can get your hands on a copy right HERE .
Recorded at Key Club Studios, Michigan and produced by Jamie Hince, the album finds The Kills with their swagger and sass intact and further cements their position as one of the most vital, striking bands recording today .
The band have been busy recently previewing the tracks to many at SXSW during some very special live shows and stunning sessions for stations such as KCRW and KUT while in Austin.  Similarly in Europe, we've been treated to some tasters of the album through special live events in France such as the recent Fleche D'Or show for SFR, and in the UK with their stunning Radio 1 with Zane Lowe at the famous Maida Vale studios.
They head out on their North American headline tour this month, and then return for their UK tour in May / June which ends with a headline show at London's prestiguous Roundhouse.  Full dates here
